Nashi pears taste like a combination of apple and pear: they are naturally crisp, delicately sweet and totally delish.
This is one of my favourite baby purees to make as the colour and consistency of the puree is so pure and pristine, like a fresh blanket of snow in every cube!
And the flavour is so lovely, I add them to Isobel's baby rice cereal and they also help to take the edge off of those slightly offensive veggies (ie: any one she doesn't really like). She will pretty much try anything mixed with a cube of nashi pear.
Recipe for nashi pear
5 large fruit would fill 1 whole tray, or yield 21 cubes. The store only had medium nashi pears when I was there so I only filled half my tray!
Quarter, peel and core nashi pears. Lightly steam until tender. Puree using your hand held or stick blender. The fruit is so tender and naturally juicy that no extra water should be necessary.
Spoon portions into your mumi&bubi premium BPA-free freezing tray and allow to cool before placing in the freezer.
